Fans enjoy 4th Max Capital City Classic

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

No matter which side you pull for, one thing is for sure--the "Iron Bowl" of baseball has become a staple for Tide and Tiger fans.

"It's just exciting. It's like football…it's just baseball," says Auburn Fan Linda Beard. 

Linda and her friend, John McNeill are friends--divided.  They come to the game together every year.

"It's a lot of fun, a lot of arguments. We have flags on the car. Auburn on my side and Alabama on his," says Beard.

They're not the only couple taking in the sights and sounds of the rivalry match-up.

Luckily for David and Wanda Harms, they're rooting for the same team and celebrating a special occasion at the same time.

"I gave him tickets for our 32nd anniversary," says Wanda.

When it comes to celebrating, Riverwalk Stadium directors are doing the same-unveiling Biscuits Vision HD--a brand new state of the art screen four times larger than the old one.

And fans are already raving.

"It's great. It's great. A lot easier for us old folks to see," adds Beard.

"It's an asset to the stadium," says Wanda.

"It's in HD, and it's really easy to see. It's a really good thing to have at the park," adds Auburn fan, Mike Shockey.

The Auburn Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide 8-3 for the fourth time in four years.
